Worked with Russ many times over the past few years, each shoot always gets better and better.
Most recently worked with Russ today, as always we chatted, had a laugh and he does make an excellent coffee.. An added bonus to shooting with Russ, haha.
We worked through several different 'sets'.. We put our ideas together and everything worked so well, I am absolutely over the moon with the images from today, each image different from the next as Russ is so talented and so good with lighting and photography skills.. Oh and a perfectionist too.
Good friend, fab shoot, total gentleman and loved the images.. I cant recommend Russ highly enough.
Thanks again and see you soon,
Shot with Russ yesterday at his lovely home studio. Really personable and made me feel very comfortable straight away. He had lot's of great ideas/concepts and was happy for me to contribute too. Real pleasure from start to finish. Highly recommended!
It's been a while but Russ was as friendly and helpful as ever. Great ideas again and the images were fantastic. He took my suggestions on board and was very kind helping me navigate Newcastle! Nothing was too much trouble. The time flew by and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thanks again to a highly creative and talented photographer.
We had an excellent 2nd shoot last week, felt very at ease and Russell had lots of ideas, we did some sets in his studio set up and some in his bathroom, again very accommodating and had fun with it. Certainly recommend him!
I had a realy fun and productive shoot with Russ today, he arrived on time , communication prior to the shoot was excellent, hes very organised with ideas and took great care in getting the lighting right to ensure he got the exact shots he wanted we both worked very well creatively together i realy enjoyed working with russ, a very calm lovely person to be around , i will be more than happy to work with russ again :)
I worked with Russ again last month- as always, he had great ideas, was great fun to shoot with and booked a stunning hotel location which fitted the theme perfectly! (Thankyou again for afternoon tea!)
He remains one of my favourite photographers to shoot with and is recommended to all. :)
I had a fantastic full day shoot with Russ that was creative, productive and very enjoyable.
One of the ideas we had discussed beforehand was a jazz-age theme. The idea was right up my street to begin with so i had high hopes for this shoot to say the least and i certainly wasn't disappointed.
Russ is a wonderful photographer; full of ideas, very respectful and polite at all times and a great conversationalist.
He gives very good direction where necessary but is equally happy to allow the model to move as they see fit.
I felt comfortable, relaxed and happy throughout and i'm confident we produced great results.
I look forward to our next shoot.
Had an amazing shoot with Russ the other day. He was very kind to meet me at the train station which was a big help as I had never been to Newcastle before. The shoot was very pleasant, Russ was very hospitable and fun. He enjoyed chatting and discussing ideas that we worked with to. He is an amazing photographer and I'm glad we worked together in team, from what I've seen we have produced amazing images and I would defiantly work with him again without hesitation. If you get the opportunity to work with Russ I recommend you take it as you won't be disappointed.
I worked with Russ for the first time this week over in Newcastle. What a lovely man!
Russ very kindly offered me accommodation too as we had an all-day shoot and the journey there and back would have been a bit much. He looked after me so well and I was made to feel more than comfortable in his home. The shoot itself was great and I had so much fun! We shot a variety of ideas and even got to nip out to do some at the beach. It was such a productive and enjoyable day. Russ is an absolute pleasure to work with and comes highly recommended by me! I would love to work with him again.
Thank you Russ!
Had a fantastic shoot with Russ last Saturday in Newcastle, a lovely person easy to get on with, creative and focused photographer a pleasure to work with, im looking forward in seeing the result and hope I will work with him again in the future.
I can highly recommend Russ to all models
I had another shoot today with Russ alongside AmyBeloved i had a great time russ was very welcoming and always is so proffesional and respectful but is also friendly and fun too he also makes the best tea in theworld! thanks for the shoot russ hope to work with you again soon :) x
Russ is genuinely lovely, I had been off modelling for a bit due to bad experiences, but in his company I felt totally comfortable! We got lots and lots done and I cannot wait to see the images because I know they will be wonderful.
I have wanted to work with Russ for a while now, and I'm ever so pleased I got the opportunity to do so today.
Russ is a generous and kind gentleman, as well an excellent and highly talented photographer - I am immensely pleased with what we achieved today, and I believe we'll hit even higher targets working together again :)
Working with him has been a great way to start 2013 :)
Had an awesome shoot with Russ the other day... we shot at mine, some indoor and outdoor and it was great to work with him... He was friendly and we had a great chat! He made me feel very comfortable and he was very professional. We have some amazing images from fashion to erotic! Amazing shoot and can't wait to come up to Newcastle and shoot again! I would recommend Russ to anyone in a heartbeat. Thanks again! Elle X
Had my first shoot with Russ yesterday, at my house. Turned up on time with lights and was extremely polite & made me feel at ease. We had a 3 hour shoot and got some great images. I would strongly recommend booking Russ for a shoot & will more then likely be shooting with him again :)
Book up with him ladies :)
Really enjoyed my shoot with Russ. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed the second I walked through the door.
He was understanding of me starting out being 40 mins early turning into 30 mins late after getting stuck in traffic & had plenty of great ideas to keep me entertained through-out the shoot
Definitely Recommend to other models, experienced & new as he allows the model to interpret ideas in their own way and can give good direction politely
